container manifest


container manifest (Information Flow): Official statement of the cargo held in a container.

Freight Equipment (Source Physical Object): 'Freight Equipment' represents a freight container, intermodal chassis, or trailer and provides sensory, processing, storage, and communications functions necessary to support safe, secure and efficient freight operations. It provides equipment safety data and status and can alert the appropriate systems of an incident, breach, or tamper event. It also provides accurate position information to support in-transit visibility of freight equipment.

Roadside Equipment (Destination Physical Object): 'Roadside Equipment' (RSE) represents the Connected Vehicle roadside devices that are used to send messages to, and receive messages from, nearby vehicles using Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) or other alternative wireless communications technologies. Communications with adjacent field equipment and back office centers that monitor and control the RSE are also supported. This device operates from a fixed position and may be permanently deployed or a portable device that is located temporarily in the vicinity of a traffic incident, road construction, or a special event. It includes a processor, data storage, and communications capabilities that support secure communications with passing vehicles, other field equipment, and centers.

The contents of a freight container may not necessarily be something that should be made public. If it is known that a container is carrying high value objects, it may be the target of theft. Due to the nature of this information, it is impossible to be certain that what it states is true, thus it cannot have a HIGH integrity. However, it should be as accurate as possible. If this data is missing, the system cannot make a decision about how to handle that vehicle. However, there are multiple chances for this data to be transmitted and received. Additionally, if the vehicle is not pre-approved it will be handled by border security.
